A wonderful night of bluegrass courtesy of Blue Ox Music Festival!
Win tickets to the upcoming festival on June 13-15 and hang with a couple of the bands!! Blue Ox Music Festival, located in Eau Claire Wisconsin, is a three-day (June 13-15) music & camping festival featuring Bluegrass, Roots, and Americana music.

We will be giving away a pair of Festival tickets to one lucky winner.

Them Coulee Boys
Them Coulee Boys are sure to kick down an equal dose of punk-folk calamity and Americana balladry, 4-part harmonies learned in dive bars and church basements, and a banjo stomp so infective you are sure to join with abandon.”
— Mid West Music Fest

Barbaro’s music is at once lively and intimate, perfect for twirling around the dance floor or cooking with someone you love. The Minneapolis-Winona quartet have built momentum around their dynamic sound, each set flowing naturally between energetic jams and contemplative interludes. Their upcoming album, due out spring 2019, showcases their captivating songwriting, layered over textures pulled from bluegrass, jazz, pop, and country-western.

Chicken Wire Empire
“The new Chicken Wire Empire record is a technically proficient, well-crafted mixture of modern original songwriting and time earned classics. They seem to have taken on some wonderfully exciting elements of modern progressive bluegrass while also retaining their original character, born of their greater Milwaukee town roots.” – Adam Greuel of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades
